*Please note that our delivery service is uninsured above £50 and not trackable or traceable other than when the delivery is signed for. All goods are quality control inspected prior to leaving our premises and are in perfect condition. However, it is at the risk of the purchaser that the goods arrive in the same condition they left our laboratory. We strongly advise special delivery for all items over the value of £50 just for peace of mind. We cannot accept any responsibility for lost or damaged goods. Though the recorded delivery service is generally very reliable and used by most suppliers on the internet, if you do have a problem, using the Special Delivery service will allow you to claim back from the Royal Mail the value of goods up to £500.

Prescription Orders

Over 95% of orders dispatched are delivered within the timeframes stated above, however, due to the nature of the glazing process, we can not guarantee specific delivery dates on prescription orders. Prescription lenses are made to very high standards with low tolerance for errors and are rigorously checked at all stages of production. Any error in the prescription across the lens, deficiencies in the coating or blemishes that cannot be removed means the lens would need to go back in production and re-made. All prescription lenses are also rigorously checked at Eyekit before dispatch and any errors will mean that the lenses as sent back to the glazer for replacing. We have a zero tolerance for errors to ensure our customers receive prescription eyewear to the highest standards and we will not compromise on these standards even if it means delivering eyewear later than expected. Your eyesight is perhaps your most important sense and you deserve the best sight possible.
